Course information

All new electrical installations are required to comply with the 18th Edition of the IET Wiring Regulations. These regulations are recognised by the British Standards Institute as a British Standard (BS7671). This 18th Edition Wiring Regulations course ensures you are up to date with the latest industry regulation on wiring systems.

This qualification may be required for operatives wishing to join the ECS Card Scheme, some Electrical Registration Bodies, Competent Person Schemes (CPS) or the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).

The course is classroom-based; there is no practical element. Our expert trainers will guide your learning in an informal and lively environment and will be on-hand to answer questions and help you prepare for the assessment. 

You will complete a 2-hour online exam which consists of 60 multiple choice questions. The exam is ‘open book’ which means you can refer to your 18th Edition book throughout. 

On completion of this course, you will receive City & Guilds Level 3 Certificate


There are no formal pre-requisites, however, it is recommended that candidates should have suitable knowledge of electrical theory and ideally be working within the electrical industry or a related sector.

You will require the new 18th Edition book and preferably the revised 18th Edition on-site guide. We can provide these books for you at cost - please contact our training department team on 01969 666 111 for further details.

Training, assessment and certification and all other course materials are included.
